I suspect Porsche has carefully thought through the pros and cons of this strategy. In the end, the product experience and value proposition needs to stand on its own and I believe GT Porsches...

Your SR3 is probably more fun on the track anyhow. I do miss mine and the intense competition offered by the series. I may step back in with a 1500 in the future.....

I'm basing it on the fact that it's a performance enhancing option that was offered on their highest performing car. A car that was launched with that option.

I couldn’t order my 2RS with mag wheels yet they’re available on 3RS’s. Seems irrational given the differences in base price and the fact that they were shown on the launch car, as well as being...

RSR is non active. I believe the uprights on the prototype were boxed in to disguise their final shape and create the illusion that the wing is supported in the traditional manner. The fact that the...

I suspect that 95% of the aerodynamic decisions are made via CFD simulations and in wind tunnels. On road/track testing are probably just for fine tuning and confirmation.

Doesn't the test mule have camouflaged swan neck wing supports (a la RSR and Senna)? This will certainly be the trend in the next generation of supercars/hypercars.

I mentioned my preference for PDK as the manual is a key selling feature for some on the GT3. I’m not compromising in that area by having an RS. As for the GT3 vs RS PDK, I suspect there are some...

Agree the differences on paper are minor. I'm personally drawn to the RS as it offers a slightly rawer experience - which I favor for a weekend toy. Less interior sound insulation, thinner side and...

Agree it’s minuscule, particularly in the 488. While quite responsive at initial tip in, I can still feel the rush of torque increasing as the boost builds to peak pressure. This sensation is not...

Funny, I think the exact opposite and would paint red calipers yellow for a chalk car. I ordered my 2RS in chalk because I love the chalk/black/yellow combo. Pic is not my car (March build) but was...
